This is the most complete account to date of American poetry and literary criticism in the Modernist period. Andrew Dubois and Frank Lentricchia examine the work of Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, and Wallace Stevens. Irene Ramalho Santos broadens the scope of the poetic scene through attention to a wide diversity of writers--with special emphasis on Gertrude Stein, Marianne Moore, and Langston Hughes. William Cain traces the rise of an internationalist academic aesthetics and the process by which the study of a distinctive national literature was instituted.
